Optatec, which takes place once every two years, is the traditional trade fair meeting place for the most important players in the optics industry. 540 exhibitors from 32 countries and 5,803 expert visitors from 45 nations came to Frankfurt in 2018. Expert visitors are able to gain an impression of current worldwide products, as well as stand-alone and system solutions and applications of optical technologies. These include optical components, materials, coatings, optomechanical components and elements, fiber optics, optical waveguides, laser components, photonics, systems for additive manufacturing, industrial image processing and optical metrology.

As a global knowledge platform, Optatec offers a world-class supplementary programme. The exhibitor forum addresses the industry sector’s current issues, which are dealt with in expert presentations. Visitors will also be able to attend a Spectaris workshop covering DIN ISO 10110, in order to explore the current status of and planned amendments to the creation of drawings of optical elements and systems. In this way, Optatec will bridge the gap between scientific findings, new technologies and practical applicability.
